Hak Seon Yang of Korea took gold in the vault at the North Greenwich Arena as Kristian Thomas finished eighth.

Yang scored highly on his second vault (16.553) and took the gold ahead of Russia's Denis Ablyazin (16.399) with Igor Radivilov of the Ukraine taking bronze (16.316)

Igor Radivilov of the Ukraine took bronze with 16.316.
